According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Green Bay Packers plan on trying to trade tight end Jermichael Finley in the offseason and if they will release him if they’re not able to trade him. Sources familiar with the Packers’ thinking say the club not only wants to get rid of Finley but has decided to do exactly that in the off-season. It means that if the Packers cannot find a trade partner, they are prepared to release Finley because of financial, competitive and behavioral reasons. There is no way the Packers will pick up the second half of the two-year, $14 million contract they gave Finley in late February, according to sources.

  • As a Packer fan it is very dissapointing how bad J Mike is.He does nothing for the team,it is all about J Mike.He does not block well on runs,drops balls,and oh yeah those stupid celebrations after finally catching a ball.I was suprised the Packers signed him last year.If he would block on runs,they could probably get a couple of those 76 yard touchdown playes Mr. Crabtree got.We have good tightends,no room for a buffoon on the Packers.
